a clean, long-term debt ceiling increase and a bipartisan balanced budget that protects medicare and social security, invests in the future and responsibly reduces the deficit. we all know that. we know that as we go forward to reduce the deficit we need growth and job creation, we need spending cuts, we need revenue. democrats have already agreed to $1.6 trillion in spending cuts. democrats have already agreed to more than $1 trillion in medicare savings to strengthen medicare and protect ben fish cares and not to asess their benefits. democrats and republicans came together to avert the fiscal cliff and raise revenues by delinking the tax cut for the high end from to the tax cuts for the middle class. we all agree more can and must be done to get our fiscal house in order. but we must face the facts. real, lasting deficit reduction will only be achieve through the an approach that is balanced, fair, and focused on the jobs, on jobs and the prosperity of our middle class. unfortunately, this bill on the floor today fails to meet those standards. americans an members of congress

's tenure. the only time we had this kind of chaos over the debt ceiling was in 2011, the last time we ran up against this. >> time out for a second. we have never had this kind of series of unsustainable budget deficits that threaten the future -- >> not true. >> okay, world war ii. >> aside from that. >> in relative peace time we never had this type of threat to the united states of america. >> so i disagree. >> you can disagree, that is fine, let me finish. we have to act, i would love to act in a more accommodating way. but we have a president who doesn't seem to care about deficits and debt. he will mouth piece. >> you're in a good place. >> i have -- >> i have seen this gentleman in the white house act as he has acted now for four years, and he could have done a lot of things concerning the deficit, the debt, he controlled the united states house -- >> we don't have much time. >> he said -- >> put the talking points and the president aside and let's talk about how we get to where we are to where we need to be. i think it will pass, we have a number of months, i would say you and your
and then there were negotiations and a last minute deal. you have a plan to deal with the debt ceiling. i want you to explain it. i've been skeptical of it, but i'm coming around and see that they might actually be some wisdom behind it and i'm giving you credit as a strong credit of the cliff deal. explain it. >> what's going forward right now, we do not want to give any long-term new debt limit as you go forward. so what we're saying is here is the senate that has not produced a budget. you know it, sean, your listeners know it, but not many across america. the last time this democrat-controlled senate passed a budget, the ipad wasn't even introduced yet and they've already gone through what, three different versions? so we're doing a short-term moving the debt limit past the april 15th deadline, 'cause the most responsible thing any elected official could do is do a budget. how do you plan for the future. so we move it to there and if you don't pass the budget you don't get paid and now what? before that time, those cuts that we fought for in the last debt limit. they go into effect the first o
to the debt ceiling must be matched by spending cuts. it was the swiftest and most drastic position switch in boehner's speakership. it was not lost on kevin mccarthy who said, "what they'll say after that vote, this is the day of the comeback." maybe if comeback also conotes fractious and uncertain strategy. with no democratic support, the way could go the way of boehner's plan b if just seven republicans break rank. and they still have to contend with the rightward flank. >> you wouldn't believe the number of conservative commentators, hey, you know what, we're going to have to start backing off obama, he's not really a bad guy, not a socialist marxist, he's just a chicago thug. we're becoming isolated on an island here, it's very small. it's a drift out in the middle of nowhere. >> joining us now to discuss this is the sage of capitol hill, nbc's luke russert. luke, it never stops being -- >> how are you? >> i'm great. i'm great. >> thanks for quoting jake sherman. he's a good american. way to quote him on the intro. >> you're welcome. luke, we know that nothing is secure when it comes
, everybody. the house is expected to vote on extending the debt ceiling. there is a new plan the house will take up which would say no one in the house of congress that doesn't pass a budget should get paid after i believe may 19th or something. is that a plan that would also pass in the senate? >> it might, becky. i've got give the house credit for focusing on the real underlying cause of all this government by cliff we've been living through,s which the fact that the senate doesn't function. senator reed chooses not to do a budget resolution for three consecutive years, we did no appropriation bills, no bill to address the debt ceiling and the consequence of this is we end up at midnight on december 31st with a gun to our head trying to get something done at the last minute nobody's had a chance to look at. what the house is saying is, it's about time the senate actually did what any law requires, which is pass a budget. and begin the process of setting the parameters for how we will solve this problem and live within our means and how we will eventually get on a sustainable fiscal p
late today. have we heard anything? >> well, shep, some conservatives don't love this debt ceiling deal because they don't like the idea of adding to the nation's credit card. but all republicans are frustrated by the senate not passing budgets. so the message that house republicans are sending to their senate colleagues is if you don't do your job you should not get paid. >> right now, the biggest issue is the debt that's crushing the future for our kids and our grand kids. hard working taxpayers understand you can't keep spending money that you don't have. so we're going to continue to focus, especially here over this next 90, 120 day period on bringing some fiscal responsibility to washington. >> sources say late today in that meeting house speaker john boehner announced that house budget chairman paul ryan, the former vice presidential candidate is working on a plan to balance the budget in less than 10 years. that gives some reassurance to conservatives who are anxious about voting to authorize more debt, shep. >> shepard: democrats, mike, said they wanted a longer extension. what'
's debt ceiling through may 19. that vote is set for tomorrow. congressman paul ryan, last year's republican vice presidential nominee, said today republicans want to shift the focus to enacting a budget, with major spending cuts. the senate is going on four years now for not having passed a budget. we think this gives us the time we need in this nation to have a good, thorough vigorous and honest debate about what it takes to get our fiscal house in order and about how to budget. families budget. businesses budget. our federal government should budget. >> ifill: the bill also says if lawmakers don't enact a budget with spending cuts, they won't be paid. in the senate, democratic majority leader harry reid declined to comment on that provision, but he did say that, in general, he welcomes the house move. >> i'm very glad that they sent us up a clean... they're going to send us a clean debt ceiling bill. the other stuff on it will athat when we need to. i'm glad we're not facing crisis here in a matter of a few days. >> sreenivasan: president obama said he wanted a longer-term ex
the debt ceiling until may 18. included in that, two caveats. the senate has to come up with a budget, which they haven't since 2009. did you know that that was before the ipad was created. the chevy volt, bieber fever, and instagram. it's about time the senate actually comes up with a budget. also incorporated into this is if they don't, then members of congress would not get any dough. their paychecks would be suspended. >> steve: speak of dough, gretch, joining us right now, did you realize today is national pie day? we've got the owner of grand traverse pie company in michigan. look at that. we've made animation for you. good morning to you. >> good morning, steve, how are you? >> steve: how many pies do you think you've made since 2009 when they last passed a budget in the senate? >> oh, boy. we've made few hundred thousand pies. i think we've done our work. now we need others to do their work. >> steve: you actually do work with the dough, where the dough is real, unlike funny dough. >> yeah. and the thing is, you combine cherries and blueberries and you get a compromise of the
